I had one major problem with Rock/Punk last night. This may seem like nitpicking and it may not mean to shit to most people but when The Rock got into the ring after going through the table to end the 10 count, CM Punk turned around way too fast. Yeah, I know, over-exaggerating right?
But it's those little things that piss me off. I'm all for getting the most out of nothing in pro wrestling. Punk's back was turned to The Rock, therefore he should have been unaware of Rock entering. So what he should have done was sit there and take it all in, big grin on his face, thinking he's all won then bam! He realizes the crowd is suddenly cheering so he's all confused and turns around and surprised to see what awaits him. But to just spin around like that and attack him, just lacks drama. You know? It lacks any sort of emotion.
Again, to most this is nitpicking. But shit, like I said, it's cool to get a reaction from jumping off a ladder. It's impressive to get a reaction from just pulling down a strap on your singlet.
It's moments like that that make question's Punk's ability as a worker. As a matter of fact, I don't think much of him as a worker tbh. I mean sometimes he can be great, other times he's questionable. I have Punk nowhere in a top 10. Top 10 promo guys, maybe. Workers? Hell no. Then again a lot of guys who I am huge fans of I'll put nowhere in a top 10. Jericho, for example, is a guy who I'm a huge fan of but he's nowhere in atop 10 of mine or 20.
